Our seemingly endless run of cloudy weather will continue tonight with lows dropping into the low to mid 20s. More clouds will be around tomorrow and most of the day should be precipitation-free. However, I am going to include a slight chance (<20%) of a late day shower or wintry mix shower. I’m also going to keep a slight chance of some wintry mix showers in the forecast Monday night into early Tuesday morning. Overnight lows will be in the low to mid 30s.
A weak area of low pressure will try to develop along the Delmarva Peninsula through the day on Tuesday. Clouds will not be going anywhere and I’ll put the chance of rain showers at 40%. This chance may go up or down depending on how close that low pressure is to us. Highs Tuesday will be around 44.
A very strong storm will develop through the Great Lakes late Wednesday night into Christmas Day. The positioning of this storm will keep our area in the warm sector. The bulk, if not all, of the precipitation will fall as rain. The rain could be heavy at times with some gusty winds also likely. High temperatures will be 25 to 30 degrees above average. We should have no problem reaching into the mid 50s. A front will cross the area overnight into Christmas morning and although temperatures will fall, they are still expected to remain above average. Lows should be around 40. Through Christmas Day, it looks like it will remain windy and aside from maybe a few early rain showers, most of the day may stay dry and unseasonably mild. Highs will be around 44.
The storm will pull away Friday, but the clouds may remain with highs around 41. By Saturday, some colder and more seasonable air should find its way into the Twin Tiers. I’ll put highs around 38 Saturday with a slight chance (<20%) of a few snow showers. Next Sunday looks cloudy with a 20% chance of snow showers.
